Finally ordered a new CV last night. Looking forward to being able to wheel again. Today I went to Harbor Freight and picked up a 48" High Lift, then to Home Depot to pick up some hardware to mount it.
Jack - $39.99 +tax
Hardware- $12 +/-
I bought a 1/2"x13 x 12" rod and cut it into two 5" lengths. I drilled two 1/2" holes in my roof rails 32" apart, using the middle hole on the forward section of the rail as a start. I used four washers, six nuts, and two wing nuts to put it all together. Two of the nuts (one on each mount) to allow the jack to sit above the rails and allow it to still be moved. The cable is 2' of 1/8" rubber coated. I am VERY happy with how it came together, very clean, very professional look.
